On Sunday 5th March, 24 candidates were confirmed in Sedbergh School Chapel, in a memorable and enjoyable Confirmation Service 2017 with Bishop Robert (The Bishop of Penrith).

School Chaplain Rev. Paul Sweeting, said: “Family, godparents and friends were there to lend their support and the service reflected the Christian faith and values that the School stands for while welcoming one and all whatever their personal beliefs.  

Afterwards, the candidates paused for a photo with the Bishop, Headmaster and Chaplain before heading off to celebrate! The candidates had prepared over a number of weeks by spending time in groups looking at key aspects of Christian faith and how they might live it out in their own situation.  This was underlined by the Bishop’s message on the day.”
